Revised September 2020. October 2020 Andy Wojtowich. January 2021.
7A III2 7 • C3a (High 9, Slightly Doubled Ear, Reverse of VAMs 5G, 23) (190) I-2 R-5
Obverse III2 7 - Very slightly doubled right inside of Liberty head ear, but not enough to list separately. Slightly high 9 with date at right edge of normal lateral position and set lower than VAM 23B date.
Die markers - Die chip on right side of right 8 on later die states. Patch of diagonal fine polishing lines right middle outside of Liberty head ear.
Reverse C3a - Same die as VAMs 5G, 23, 23A, and 23B, but later die state and no die clash marks present.
- VAM 7A listing was also prepared to account for the earlier unclashed letter die state [of VAM 7B] that presumably exists. (LVA 9/2020)
